Gage Roads Brew Co has launched a new limited release beer, the Party Wave Stone Fruit Sour, which the brewer hopes will kick-start summer.
As the name suggests there are stone fruit aromas upfront, with a hint of funk with the beer then delivering a tart and refreshing finish. Gage Roads’ head brewer Ross Brown says Party Wave strikes a great balance, and will be a favourite this summer.
“Party Wave is the perfect match for an Aussie summer filled with all the good stuff. On the nose there’s rich ripe fruit with moreish apricot and peach aromas, and some really nice tartness on the finish,” Brown said.
“It’s not a sour that will invert your face, but it brings the sour funk you’d expect. I can definitely see myself getting into a few cans out in the sun over summer.
Party Wave is brewed with real Aussie peach and apricot, which Brown says is as clear on the nose as it is the palate.
“I love the freshness and amazing fruit character we’ve been able to get into Party Wave,” he said. “Sour beers are great in summer, they’re super refreshing and a great palate cleanser as well. There’s great balance and approachability here and I think that will be really enjoyed by beer drinkers, sour fans and anyone that loves a refreshing drink in the sun.”
Party Wave comes in at 4.2 per cent ABV. It’s available in 500ml four-pack cans and on-tap, see your Good Drinks representative for more information.
